Talk us through your first tattoo and what inspired it?
I don’t truly believe in Gods anymore but I still hate any religion that tells you what the fuck to do!
There’s a lot of crossover between horror and ink fans, what do you think the connection is?
Horror fans are passionate–horror can let the viewer soak up their on screen character’s murderous actions and it’s a positive outlet instead of actually butchering all the fuck ignorant, selfish and stupid people that deserve it!
Getting your murderous idol on your skin is the ultimate tribute and dark imagery causes the biggest reaction of disapproval with the sheep!
Of all your tattoos which do you think is most synonymous with horror?
I myself personally only have imagery inspired from the comics and game The Darkness, consisting of gnarly teeth and eyes freehanded by Bez at Triplesix.
I have tattooed tonnes of horror movie characters, but my main source of horror
comes directly from the evil inside my head!
There are so many but if I had to be tattooed by one it would be Tommy Lee Wendtner.
How much do a person’s tattoos tell you about them?
Everyone is so different. People who have Cheryl Cole style hand tattoos should be bludgeoned to death!
Is it ok to get a tattoo because it just looks fucking cool or do you believe there should be a deep message behind each tattoo?
As long as the tattoo is done well and fits the body right then it’s all good!
What advice do you have for people considering their first tattoos?
Stop hesitating and quit being a pussy, DO IT!
Any words of warning regarding tattooing and things to avoid?
In this day and age if you walk into a tattoo studio and they don’t have a website or a portfolio and you get tattooed then you’re a stupid fuck and I have no sympathy.
For those who haven’t been to a tattoo convention, what can they expect?
If, for whatever reason, you were told that you could only have one more tattoo, what would it be and why?
I’d get another session on my leg by Bez (continuing The Darkness) as I still have at least 15 hours to go!
There are still a lot of people who discriminate against tattoos in the work place, why do you think that is? Do you think this trend is reversing?
Yes and No, we are still very far from acceptance from inking our bodies in the majority of places.
It doesn’t make a blind bit of difference to a person’s performance but sheep do like to bleat!
